Extensive search on to locate the youth

GANGTOK, June 15: Five college students who went for adventure trekking from Kabi to Paach Pokhari in North Sikkim ended with a missing participant on June 13 on their way back to Kabi.

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
